As a fan I think this is great. I've repeatedly said that my favorite start time is 2:30 and regional ABC games have excellent coverage (much, much better than the Versus or FSN coverage for games in Ames).
In much less exciting news, the start time for the Eastern Illinois game was also announced today. It will be an 11:00 AM kickoff and aired on the Big Ten Network. No surpises here. We now know the start time for 5 games of the first 6 games on the Iowa Football Schedule:
- Eastern Illinois - 11:00 (BTN)
- Iowa State - 2:30 (ABC&ESPN2)
- @ Arizona - 9:30 (ESPN)
- Penn State - 7:00 (ABC/ESPN/ESPN2)
- @ Michigan - 2:30 (ABC)
